October 2011 Non-Fiction Book of the Month.

This unflinching yet funny book tells how one woman decided to say 'Bah!' to cancer through thinking strategies, a proactive approach to treatment, and a determination to keep the rest of her life going and retain a sense of humour (most of the time!). It shares what she learnt along the way, from the nature of cancer cells and chemotherapy drugs, to how she was able to help her friends and family to help her. It is an honest and refereshing look at Breast cancer which will affect one in nine of women in the UK at sometime in their lives.

How I Said Bah! to Cancer : A Guide to Thinking, Laughing, Living and Dancing Your Way Through by Stephanie Butland

'I was never going to die from cancer. That hard lump peeping out of the top of my bra was aggressive but it was small enough to be contained, and I was young and strong and otherwise well. All the signs were good. Words like 'lucky' and 'caught in time' were thrown around like rice at a wedding. No, I was never going to die from cancer. But from the beginning, I never planned simply to survive it. Oh no. I was going to say a great big Bah! to it. Please, join in. Cancer? Bah'.


Of all the books written about breast cancer, Stephanie Butland's unflinching yet humorous look at her dance with the disease is one of the best... It is a must read for any woman with the disease who wants to be proactive in her approach to treatment. Take A Break Magazine

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.
